Amy Ziering is a two-time Academy Award® nominated and Emmy® award-winning filmmaker behind some of the most ground-breaking documentaries today with her creative partner Kirby Dick. Many of her films have directly impacted American politics and culture, resulting in real-world change. Ziering’s latest project, Allen vs Farrow (2021), is a four-part investigation into one of Hollywood’s most notorious scandals: the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving his then seven-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow. Her previous film, On The Record (2020), was a searing look at the intersection of issues relating to the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements. The Invisible War (2012) exposed the epidemic of rape in the US military leading dozens of policy reforms signed into law. The Hunting Ground (2015) created a national discussion of sexual assault on college campuses and sparked sweeping reforms at hundreds of institutions. The Bleeding Edge (2018) unearthed the fast-growing medical device industry’s corruption and malfeasance, resulted in Bayer and Johnson & Johnson pulling dangerous products off the market.
